Calling all bird lovers! — Break out those binoculars and join Bluff Lake Volunteer Naturalists and expert birders as they guide you through the trails at Bluff Lake in search of avian adventures. These walks are FREE! More bird species have been identified at Bluff Lake than any other natural area in Denver County — over 170 and counting.

Join us on the first Saturday of every month, all year long, from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m.
(Bird walks will be canceled if the temperature at 8 am is 20 degrees or lower, it is raining, or there is more than 2 inches of snow on the ground.)

Don’t miss your chance to learn from an expert! No experience is necessary. Bring binoculars and a bird field guide if you have them. If you don’t have the equipment, we have plenty to share. Be sure to dress for the weather! Meet by the brown building in the parking lot.

Over 170 species have been identified at Bluff Lake, and every week brings another opportunity to add more to the list! For a copy of our Bluff Lake Birding Checklist, click here. Other resources include:
